    I'm trying to build up my repertoire of easy 3 or maybe 4 chord songs, stuff that I can add to my set lists just so I don't play the same stuff all the time. What is your favorite easy rocker that you'll admit to?

    Blues music is traditionally only about 3 chords (due to the nature of the 12 bar blues, although they mix it up every now and again)

    Or anything by Chuck Berry ;)

    But to be fair, most pop songs are about 4 chords or so.

    As evidenced by this montage:



    As long as you stick away from prog, you should be fine ;)

    Yeah, it is. I play it with G, C and D... easiest chords in the book.

    The intro is played with a different G, C and D further down the fretboard of the guitar :D :tongue:
